Red Burgundy Pinot Noir alternative



Akitu A1 Pinot Noir from NZ is excellent stuff.

Not cheap, I’m not sure what it’s going for now (I think I paid about £30 per bottle) but fantastic value compared to an equivalent quality Burgundy.


I had a delightful Grivot 2013 about a year ago in a BBR sale for a tenner. Really lovely stuff and the wine was very much in the producer’s style. More likely to scratch a burgundy itch than a new world pinot for me.
